Product Details

Chemical formulas, such as (NH4)2SO4 with all of those seemingly random numbers, letters and parentheses, can seem intimidating to a student who is first learning to write formulas. This “teacher-tested” kit will familiarize students with ions and allow them to actively practice combining ions in the proper ratio to determine and write correct chemical formulas. Students cut out the cation and anion cards provided, match them up to make chemical formulas, write the formula on the provided data sheet and name the compound formed. Includes reproducible student handouts, background information, procedure, data tables, questions, Teacher Notes with helpful teaching tips and an answer key and 15 masters of cations, anions and an ion formula chart.

Super Value Kit is complete for 15 student groups. All materials are reusable—one kit can be used over and over!
